With the large, menacing body of the King Fossil, you'd think this boss would be a bit more dangerous than it is. As with Brain Golem, it slowly (read: very slowly) follows you around, its arms reaching out to try and destroy your ship. Similar to the Brain Golem, this version can only be attacked in one spot -- its mouth, and only when it's open.
The arms can be destroyed, but doing so causes it to start spitting out bullets and throwing destroyable fish scales at you.
On Hard difficulty, it spits bullets out when it opens and closes its mouth regardless of whether the arms are intact. The fish scales also become indestructible.
